I like the eye-contact and the composition. The only thing that is a bit of a question mark for me is the background. I think creamier bokeh would befit the image more, whilst at the same time the jagged lines that appear add a certain "style" that differentiates this from typical BOAS pictures with super-smooth backgrounds.

Head-on is probably the only way to get any decent catch-light in the eye
Buntings eyes aren't particulary relective, are they?
